Description: In this exciting, fulfilling class students learn techniques for successful cartooning. Lessons are taught in the traditional way - constructing solid characters in classic Looney Tunes and Disney cartoon style.
The class covers the foundations of cartooning, from constructing characters, line of action, and getting the proper proportions to designing appealing characters and drawing clear poses.
As students become more comfortable cartooning they create their own characters and delve into the art of caricature, too. Since caricaturing and cartooning share many of the same principles students can easily make this leap.
Join Gary Francis for a fun, entertaining class… and be amazed how far the principles of creative cartooning can fulfill goals of creating skillful and appealing drawings.
